Flashback Friday - 13 Days Ago

Sweets,

I don't have time to write a long post, but I didn't want to miss a Flashback Friday! I thought I would share a few photos with you from my half marathon 13 days ago. So let's flashback shall we?



This is not an athletic looking stride
I already gave you a race report and break down a couple of weeks ago so I won't bore you with too many details. The above photos were taken somewhere between the 10th and 11th mile. Don't ask me why I was still smiling at this point. I can't imagine. I was feeling bored and tired. As I was running through the finishing chute, I spotted HM and really started to sprint towards the finish line.

Should I be offended that the guy is looking at the finish line instead of my hot pink @$$?
I know this may come across a little.........um rude? ignorant? insensitive?.....but in every finish line photo I have ever taken, I am usually surrounded by women dressed in ironic matching t-shirts, overweight men, or the active elderly people. That just goes to show you what a slow runner I was (sort of still am). I was happy to see that in most of my pictures from this year, I am surrounded by men (with a headband no less!) and skinny Sandy Candies (Utah reference). More than the time on the clock, I think this is an indication on how much I have improved my pace. SCORE!


 
Nothing like a good medal kissing pose at the finish line! I can't wait until I have enough guts to do a jumping photo for a race photographer. I always say I am going to do it, but chicken out at the last minute. I forbid myself from flashing any peace signs this year!

  1. You got some nice race pics! All mine are blah and the one at the finish line was cute, but so washed out that it is unusable. Oh well.
